Take a couple of products and make your corner into a super trap!

One of the most pervasive problems in recording and listening environments is the problem of bass build up in the corners.  If you want to get the most out of your room, try making your corner into a DIY super trap!

Stuff you’ll need:

Simple installation instructions:

  • Use the adhesive to attach the Foam Bass trap to the wall
  • Use the brackets to attach the Sonora® Panel across the corner over the trap

Super simple. Super effective.

As simple as it seems, this method of installing these products is an ideal way to get extra trapping in your corners.  This solution changes the corner density multiple times as the sound waves pass through it –as well as introduces a layer of air space. This installation method takes the strengths of the two products and has them working together to eliminate that build-up of energy in the corners – it literally sucks it up like a sponge!
